Common Problems You May Experience with Your Geothermal Unit
While geothermal units are known for their reliable performance, not keeping an eye out for the system’s warning signs could cause your system to fail long before its typical life expectancy.

- Water Spots on Your Lawn
- Loss of Heating or Cooling Power
- Heat or Air Not Sufficient
- Frost on the Pump
- Loud Noises
- High or Rising Electric Bills

Benefits of a Geothermal System
Installing a geothermal unit is of the best decisions you can make when it comes to your home. Unlike a furnace or A/C, it has the capability to both heat and cool your home - all without the use of fossil fuels or greenhouse gas emissions. It simply transfers heat to and from the earth – making a geothermal system an excellent choice for the energy-conscious, as well as those living in rural areas. While the initial install can be pricey, you’ll start to see payback on your energy bills within a few years. Additionally, installing a geothermal could make you eligible for a tax credit! These systems are also quieter than a traditional furnace or A/C unit, reduce humidity in the summer, provide enhanced cleanliness and safety, and promote a more consistent and even temperature in your home.
